I am a web programmer by day (PHP) and work on sermons and teaching material in the evenings.

I attended Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity. I am an associate pastor at a small church in Iowa. While in seminary, my emphasis was on Old Testament studies, but Dr. Wave Nunnally introduced me to the rabbinics. Those have become a special interest as well.

I also enjoy apologetics and was a very active member of the apologetics.org forum before it went defunct.

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics. We're a little different from other sites. We do require that answers have support. This one doesn't. Can you work with the text to tell us why GFR refers to the length, width, and thickness and why the term for ark doesn't mean "boat." Also, Noah's age really isn't the question here.

Welcome to the site. I edited your post to spell out the books of the Bible and make it easier to read. The formatting script here is nice once you get the hang of it.

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics! This is a good start on an answer. If you could incorporate some of the evidence for the Angel of the LORD being a theophany, it would really help. And if you could spend more time on why the right side shows it represents Jesus.

comment What historical reasons resulted in Revelation being included in most Christian canons?
This was prior research. "Formation of the Biblical Canon" required a term paper in two parts: 1) a book rejected by the majority of Christianity and 2) a book debated and then accepted into the canon. 1 Enoch was part 1. Revelation was part 2.
